How It Works

Step 1. Collect Shoes

We send you a FREE collection box. Then you collect running shoes at your event, organization, or store.

Step 2: Ship Box

After the box is full, we provide free return shipping at no cost to you.

Step 3: Benefit the Environment

Donating shoes keeps them out of the landfill. The proceeds from the shoes help MORE plant thousands of trees each year, which offsets carbon in the atmosphere.

What happens to the shoes?

Many people ask, “what happens to all the shoes?” The shoes are sold in major metro areas to vendors who in turn create jobs and help improve the quality of life in cities. The proceeds from the sale of the shoes provides training and tools to the poorest rural farmers. So many shoes sit in dark closets, forgotten and never worn, and then end up in landfills. Reusing these shoes further promotes the global efforts to reuse and recycle.
